Staying active and daily exercise routines can keep you feeling and looking your best at every stage of your life. An active lifestyle is especially important for seniors, because regular exercise can help prevent heart disease, diabetes, and certain forms of cancer, and it can also reduce pain associated with arthritis. By improving balance, flexibility, endurance, and strength, older adults can stay healthier and live longer.
In U.S. most of senior health care is not paid for by individuals but by private insurers and government programs like Medicare, Medicaid and the Veterans Administration. These plans pay for majority of the healthcare cost, assisted living services, and prescription drugs. All retirees over the age of 65 are enrolled in Medicare. Although Medicare does not cover every essential, there are other opportunities for supplemental health care coverage. For those who qualify, Medicaid can supplement Medicare, and for those who do not qualify, there are other programs known as Medigap insurance through a private company.
In addition to Insurances and healthcare coverage, you need to weigh your options for medical and non-medical in-home care services.
